Discipleship is not a destination, it’s a direction.

Discipleship is not a destination, it’s a direction.


First Church Tables are about taking a ‘believer in Jesus’ and moving them towards ‘looking more and more like Jesus’. First Church Tables is a place where your belief begins to become part of the DNA of who you are in your everyday life, always growing in the direction toward Jesus. Your First Church Table will meet once each week for a few months, at the church or in someone’s home. You’ll talk through a book, scripture or just life. There are First Church Tables for adults in several stages in their life.


Depending on the Table Group you choose, we offer Children's Programming for kids of all ages.

Every married couple is unique. They're an “Us.” There are things they like to do, places they like to go, histories that are their own. And whether they are loving their "Us", wondering if their "Us" is going to make it, or somewhere in between, every couple at some level wants to become their best "Us". They just may not be sure how. So while the way we are wired both individually and as a couple may be different ... While our stage of life may be different ... While our situations may be different ... There are some great marital habits that empower all of us.
